Like it or not, we are counting down the days to the end of summer here on the East End. Of course, there are still a few weeks left, but we are more than halfway through the month of August now.
It's been a beautiful summer overall: sunny, warm, and very pretty. The grass and flowers have needed plenty of help as rain has been rare, but very few events have had to contend with unpleasant weather, that's for sure.
Of course, the end of August means the beginning of September, and that's my favorite time of the year. I see cooler nights and quieter streets in the very near future, and that's a really great thing to look forward to. No matter how sad we are when we come to the end of something, there is always something exciting to look forward to. The silver lining behind every cloud if you will. And that's a good thing.
